STEEL CHURCH BUILDING COSTS AND LIFE CYCLE COSTS

It is so easy to be swept up in the excitement of planning a new church sanctuary, temple, or other religious support structure.  Good stewardship demands “counting the costs” before investing in a new church building.  Building committees must study not only the construction costs, but also the whole-life costs of operating and maintaining the building.

Practical, economical, durable steel church buildings.Pre-engineered church steel buildings deliver many advantages for churches and religious facilities— both before and after completion of the project.

“Cradle to the Grave” Cost Analysis

Too often church building committees concentrate entirely on building budget constraints.  When compared to the whole lifespan of the structure, construction costs for the building itself only account for about 11% of total costs.  Maintenance and repairs may gobble up 75% of total expenditures over 40 years.

Doesn’t it make sense to ways to shave down long-term costs tomorrow by building a quality-made structure today?

Long-Term Benefits of Steel Building Systems

Today many congregations choose affordable prefabricated steel church buildings for their sanctuary, classrooms, fellowship hall, or other support buildings because they offer the most square footage for their budget.  However, the long-term savings afforded by a premium building system are an even stronger incentive for choosing steel.

RHINO church steel buildings are:

  • Very low maintenance, staying straight and strong over the years.
  • Durable and long-lasting, retaining the value decades longer than other structures.
  • Engineer-certified to meet or exceed all local building codes for the life of the structure.
  • Full of extra waterproofing features not available with other metal building packages.
  • Able to save as much as HALF on heating and cooling costs with Pro-Value Insulation.
  • In warmer climates, choosing cool-coated roof panels saves even more on utilities.
  • Usually less expensive to insure, since steel is a non-combustible, termite-resistant, commercial-grade building material.
  • Economical to expand as attendance grows.
  • Completely recyclable at the end of the building’s lifecycle.
